Sadie is a big fan of Lost and Jack (Matthew Fox) is repeatedly shown on screen. In Knocked Up (2007), Ben is very disparaging about Matthew Fox, saying there is nothing interesting about him. Ironically, Paul Rudd was a self-described "mega-fan" of "Lost" when it was on the air. See more »
Pete's dad (Albert Brooks) mentions his mom wanted to get an abortion - because "it was the 70's". Pete becoming 40 would indicate he would have been born in 1972. Roe V. Wade was not passed until January 1973. See more »
Scratch your fingernails down a blackboard instead
This was the most rubbish film I've seen in a long time. Proving that too much of a good thing is bad, the main characters in this film, who were brilliant in Knocked Up, live up to the adage. The plot is as holey as a net and the characters as endearing as a school yard bully. The wife is a nagging whinger, the husband pathetic, the eldest daughter a spoilt brat and none of the minor characters worth mentioning (the exception being Megan Fox who holds her own.) The film is too long and you care so little for the characters that you pray and pray your misery will be over soon. Extremely disappointing from Apatow, who did so well with Knocked Up. Yes, this film is right up there with Days of Thunder as one of the worst movies ever. I only gave it one star because I couldn't give it none.
